VWS Signing In Ceremony

On Monday, September 11th, the Vivian Webb School gathered at its namesake Vivian Webb Chapel and welcomed the newly enrolled students in a ceremony dating back 36 years. Since the inception of Vivian Webb School in 1981, every new student has been invited to sign their name in a leather-bound enrollment book. Signing one’s name in this book symbolizes two milestones: that each young woman of VWS has chosen to become a member of the community; and, that they are committed to the schools’ Honor Code, values, and traditions.
 
Sarah Lantz, Dean of Students for VWS, retold the story of the very first signing in ceremony on September 11, 1981. “…the first ceremony was held at the entrance to the campus center. Thirty-four girls signed the book; 18 freshmen and 16 sophomores. At the ceremony, Howell Webb, Head of Schools at the time, told the crowd, ‘At long last, Vivian Webb has her daughters.’ Classes officially began on September 14, 1981.”
 
In total, 68 new students signed the enrollment book last Monday evening: two juniors, six sophomores, and 60 freshmen.
 
Coleen Martinez ’86 was the honored guest speaker for the evening. She recalled how hard she and her classmates worked in order to prove themselves amongst a previously all-male school.
 
A formal dinner in the Price Dining Hall followed the ceremony. A full gallery from the evening is below.
